Objectives of the DoD SBIR Program include stimulating technological innovation, strengthening small business in meeting DoD research and development needs, fostering participation by minority and disadvantaged firms in technological innovation and increasing commercial application of DoD-supported R&D. Phase I Awards, typically one-half man-year of effort, are made to firms responding to advertised solicitation topics, and are a feasibility study. Proposals selected for award contain an innovative approach to the problem as well as prospects for commercialization. Phase I success is a prerequisite for Phase II award, the development of prototype.
